Long time no see!

Derek and I have been trapped in Singapore for about 5 months already due to the outbreak of COVID-19. We do miss the days we spent together in the outside world, especially our recent trip to Japan.

While recalling those good memories in Hokkaido, I have compiled a great list of places perfect for photo-taking.

Onuma Quasi-National Park

website: https://www.hakodate.travel/en/top7/onuma-park

transportation: 30 mins JR travel

recommended play time: 2 hours

recommendation reasons:

  1. grand quasi-national park surrounded by mountains, lakes and forests.
  2. variety of activities – camping, boating and cycling
  3. snow world during winter time
  4. not many tourists – great to take photos without background crowds
  5. more activities when the lake is frozen!

Noboribetsu Date Jidaimura

website: http://edo-trip.jp/en/

transportation: 8-10 mins drive from Noboribetsu JR station

recommended play time: 4 hours

recommended reasons:

  1. very historical and exotic experience for travellers
  2. a variety of activities: shows, games, dress up etc.
  3. a variety of food
  4. not many tourists
  5. a good place for cosplay fans

Daisetsuzan Sounkyo Kurodake

website: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/hokkaido/kamikawa/daisetsuzan-sounkyo-kurodake

transportation: 30 mins bus time from JR Kamikawa Station + 5 mins walk

recommended play time: 4 hours

recommended reasons:

  1. must-go place in winter
  2. turned into a frozen world like a fairy tale
  3. perfect for skiing
  4. not many tourists
  5. great natural landscape

Sapporo Fushimi Inari Shrine

website: https://good-hokkaido.info/en/sapporo-fushimi-inari-shrine/

transportation: 15 mins taxi from CBD

recommended play time: 2 hours

recommended reasons:

  1. easy access
  2. very Japanese style
  3. the red torri is perfect for photo taking with kimono
  4. best when its snowing – but remover to keep warm!

The above 4 places are what I think perfect for photo taking during winter time. There are a lot more good places worth a visit during other seasons. I do wish the epidemic situation mitigate soon so that we are free to travel around the world again. 

Stay safe everyone!
